For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

Acting United States Attorney Jan Sharp announced that Jeffrey Fox, age 51, of Plattsmouth, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for transportation of child pornography.  United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Fox to 66 months of imprisonment and a $20,000 fine.  There is no parole in the federal system.  After completing his term of imprisonment, Fox will begin a 5-year term of supervised release. 

On October 21, 2018, Fox uploaded fifteen images of child pornography to his Yahoo account.  On January 7, 2019, agents executed a search warrant on the Yahoo account and located ten instances between October 26, 2017, and January 22, 2018, in which Fox uploaded child pornography to the account.  Agents later spoke with Fox and he admitted to sending child pornography to the account.  

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
